Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

The centre four road wheels on both sides of this Ausf H are from a Panzerkampfwagen III Tank, and its track is from a Centurion Tank. It is missing many of its external fittings, including all the Schürzen armour.

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

The track on this Pz IV appears to be from a Panzer 61 tank, not a Centurion as previously stated.

Text in original Preserved Tanks In Switzerland publication:

This Ausf H is fitted with track from a Panzer 61 tank. The sign in front of it states:

Le véhicule exposé fut livré à la Suisse pour des essais en 1945 par l’armée française.The displayed vehicle was given to Switzerland for some trials in 1945 by the French Army.
